This is an early-American Thanksgiving, late-Canadian Thanksgiving panini. I’ve been making these for about four years every fall since my brother bought me a panini press one year for my birthday. Make ’em today! Or wait until you have leftovers from Thanksgiving. Whatevs.
I start by making cranberry sauce with a bag of fresh cranberries, one cup water, one cup sugar (I used sucanat, just an unrefined sugar), some orange juice, and cinnamon. (There are instructions and recipes on the bags of cranberries.)
Take whole wheat bread, start with some cheese (I used muenster), then a spoonful of cranberry sauce and then some turkey (I like Trader Joe’s roasted turkey). I put it on the panini press for just a minute or two but you can just put them on a pan with a heavy pot on top for pressure. Ooey gooey delicious.
In other news, the Sugar Free Challenge ended on Monday and I’m really glad it’s over I did it. I may have enjoyed some brownies, cake, and ice cream this week since it ended. Ah wha?! Yeah, it’s true. This challenge may be something I need to undertake like a few days a day each week?! Oh boy.
